Utility payment help available now

Thank-you and a tip ‘o the hat to: Julie Olthoff <house_republicans@subscriptions.iga.in.gov>

Indiana’s winter disconnection moratorium, which temporarily prohibits electric and natural gas utilities from disconnecting low-income customers, ends March 15.

Hoosiers who face disconnection should contact their utility company as early as possible to negotiate a payment agreement. Many utilities also offer budget billing to assist with consistent monthly payments.

Indiana’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps pay electric and heat bills for eligible individuals. Hoosiers should contact their local Community Action Agency to see if they qualify. Click here for a county-by-county directory. Applications for the LIHEAP are available through May 14.

With the negative impacts of the pandemic on top of a cold winter, many families could be struggling to pay their utilities. If you or someone you know needs help, you can also dial 211 to connect to other resources.
